Watergate, Whitewater, and Benghazi are three scandals that could plague the candidacy of 2016 presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton. Former U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) is also the former First Lady (wife of President Bill Clinton) and former Secretary of State under Barack Obama.
Mrs. Clinton has again come under fire, this time for engaging in “…a variety of self-serving unethical practices in violation of House rules,” according to articles quoting a high-level investigator of the nefarious 1970’s Watergate matter, which ousted then President Richard M. Nixon from office.
At the time a 27 year old lawyer, Hillary Rodham landed a position working on “the investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair.”
The consummation of her involvement is characterized by her superior Jerry Zeifman, general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, in his remarks dubbing her:
“…an unethical, dishonest lawyer [who] conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”
Zeifman, who describes himself as “a lifelong Democrat” – although the distinction is railed against by websites like Kos, the Huffington Post, and Conwebwatch – believes Mrs. Clinton:
“…is ethically unfit to be either a Senator or President--and if she were to become President, the last vestiges of the traditional moral authority of the party of Roosevelt, Truman, and Johnson will be destroyed.”
Specifically Zeifman, who also authored a book in 2006 titled “Hillary’s Pursuit of Power,” claims that another lawyer, named John Labovitz, working alongside Rodham apologized for his complicity regarding:
“...her erroneous legal opinions and efforts to deny Nixon representation by counsel -- as well as an unwillingness to investigate Nixon.”
In a March 31, 2008 article written by Dan Calabrese, founder of Northstar Writers Group, Zeifman alleges that:
“Hillary wrote a fraudulent legal brief, and confiscated public documents to hide her deception.”
The same article also quotes Zeifman as saying:
“Hillary’s history of lies and unethical behavior goes back farther – and goes much deeper – than anyone realizes. [also that] …he regrets that when he terminated Clinton from the Nixon impeachment staff he did not report her unethical practices to the appropriate bar association.”
Despite the absence of any related criminal conviction of the Clintons during the Whitewater melee, it was determined in an FDIC inspector general’s report that:
“Hillary Clinton drafted a real estate document that Madison Guaranty Savings & Loan used to ‘deceive’ federal regulators in 1986.”
The former First Lady’s involvement in the ignominious Arkansas real estate matter inspired New York Times’ columnist William Safire to write a commentary titled “Blizzard of Lies,” in which he describes Hillary Clinton as “a congenital liar.”
Clinton has also been repeatedly accused of lying in the cover-up following the Benghazi torture-murders of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three others.
Despite claiming that she “didn’t deny” requests for help to avert the terrorist attack of September 11, 2012 in the Libyan port city, and that any such requests “didn’t come to me,” evidence to the contrary is quickly piling up. This evidence includes, but is not limited to, emails of which Congress now has custody, where Clinton is alleged to have been fully aware of the magnitude of the situation, yet knowingly refused to take action.
